    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Put the sausage in a large, straight-sided saute pan over medium-heat.
    2. 2
      As the sausage cooks, crumble into small pieces using a fork.
    3. 3
      When the sausage crumbles are lightly browned and fully cooked, transfer them and their pan juices to a bowl; set aside.
    4. 4
      Add the shortening to the hot pan.
    5. 5
      When the shortening has melted, add the flour, stirring it in slowly with a whisk.
    6. 6
      Stir constantly and cook the mixture until the flour is slightly browned (about 3-4 minutes).
    7. 7
      The mixture should smell nutty, not burned.
    8. 8
      Add in the milk, stirring constantly with a whisk until the gravy comes to a boil.
    9. 9
      Lower the heat to medium-low and simmer gently for 15 minutes.
    10. 10
      Add the reserved sausage and pan juices to the gravy.
    11. 11
      Mix well with a wooden spoon, seasoning to taste with salt and pepper.
    12. 12
      The gravy should be a medium-thick sauce; if needed, the gravy can be thinned by adding warm milk.
    13. 13
      Split the biscuits in half; place the halves, split side up on individual plates.
    14. 14
      Cover generously with warm gravy and serve immediately.

      I needed to use a bit more cooking oil (3 T instead of 2) - otherwise, simple to do & PERFECT results. Thanks!

      This was super easy, inexpensive and tasty! I think next time I'll add some red pepper flakes for a little zing -- or just use spicy sausage. It was a nice lazy Sunday breakfast. Thanks for posting! Made for your football pool win.

      My wife took one bite and said, "mmmm, that's Ma Maw's gravy."
      Enough said.
